Birthday Treat In Brio's Cafe Grand Copthorne Waterfront Hotel, Singapore

From Clark Quay, we wanted to walk to this Grand Copthorne Waterfront Hotel but somehow, we didn't know which direction to walk to... my legs were quite tired by then... walking almost the whole afternoon is no joke for a 50plus woman!  LOL...
we were at this interception...
looking left and right.. and in the end,
my son called a cab... he pitied his mama here..
he surprised me with an international dinner buffet in this 
Grand Copthorne Waterfront hotel...
called the BRIO's Cafe in Havelock Road..
since we were quite early, we walked to the waterfront..
to take some pictures as usual....
whereby I can rest my weary legs... phew!!
a very nice ambience for a wedding reception...
then at 6.30pm.. the buffet started!!
this is my favourite area...Desserts!!
so many cakes to choose from.. 
don't know which one to start drooling... lol..
but I didn't touch any of these... too common in Malaysia.. hahahaa...
Took a bit from here...
this is my girl's favourite section!
my first helping... 
after that, no more taking pictures..
the Dinner has started!! 
There were so much food and umpteen choices...
You name it, Brio got them!
This is my favourite too..
"Or Nee"
Yam with lots of gingko-s!!
whatever I like, AA also loves.. 
Thank you AA.. 
for giving me such a Sumptuous Birthday Treat!!
I think I gained a good kilogram that night itself...


  1. Happy birthday! Hope I'm in time to wish you!

  2. Wow...the strawberry cake is something to die for.I love buffet, always can eat to my heart's content.

  3. wow, lovely birthday treat..hope you enjoyed all those food. :)

  4. Your birthday? I thought you had your birthday sometime ago? Or was that last year? Well, happy birthday.... Nothing like having a special treat from one's loved one.

    Ya, that's what I hate about Singapore. Every place is too near to take a cab and too far too walk...especially for senior citizens like us...and too troublesome to use the MRT.

  5. Oh...Happy Birthday to you, Claire! That's such a food gosh! You are sure very well pampered. I think you should celebrate more days....haha....more than 50 days! :D

  6. A buffet by the river side. enjoyable aye. :D

  7. The food looks scrumptious. much fresh seafood. Look at the crabs legs. :D

  8. Happy Birthday to you dear! Nothing beats having a sumptuous meal with your dear children eh? You must be so proud of them! :)

  9. Happy Blessed Birthday, Claire. One year older, one year wiser. Wow, VIP treat for you. You are spoilt for choice.

  10. jessie: still early.. hehe.. thanks!

    andrew: see wanna eat a lot but then cannot eat much after a few helpings! hahaha..

    wenn: if go again, i want! :)

    stp: no wonder singaporeans are slimmer than the malaysians!! they walk a lot and we drive a lot!1n hahaha..

    mary: come to think of it, i celebrate every each day! lol..

    tekkaus: not too bad.. first time ma..

    sweetwitch: they are now grown up.. flapping wings already! :))

  11. irene: who else to spoil me but them? hahaha...

  12. good boy!! he treat you nice nice dinner in return of all your hardwork!!

  13. wah, so "romantic" having the buffet by the river front, hahaha!! should have candle light dinner instead of buffet.. but then that should be reserved for him and his girlfriend later lah, kekekeke!!

    i LOVE that strawberry cake!! so many strawberries on top!!

  14. What a wonderful birthday treat with your boy. Oh I wanna that crab leg leh. I love Or nee too!!

An Evening Dinner At Chef Chew Kitchen, Petaling Jaya

BACK TO SG. BULOH for a couple of days.... Come evening, we went for dinner at Chef Chew Kitchen in Seksyen 19, Petaling Jaya.  Since it was my first time there, I did not know what to expect except to sit back, relax and eat.  LOL... It is a one shop lot restaurant so tables are very limited.  Reservation was made at 6pm to be on the safe side, to avoid crowds and waiting for food was very minimized at this time of the day.  For the seven of us, these dishes were served on the table... Thumbs up even before the dinner...  And soon these are served...  Claypot braised ribs...  Their signature dish... Fish Maw...  First time eating fish maw which is whitish in colour...  Black Beancurd with Pumpkin sauce... Hey, this restaurant indeed serves new to me! This must be Sweet Sauce Chicken... For the American... Cos we Asians like Steamed Chicken like this!  LOL...  And the star dish of the dinner is this...  Freshly steamed and succulent prawns

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL...  Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch

Night Market Along Lee Garden Plaza Hotel, Hatyai

BY THE TIME WE REACHED THE HOTEL, it was almost dark. This time round, we took a longer rest in the hotel... my girl might not need it but I certainly did!  After recharging around 80% of my body strength, we were ready to explore the streets again. Our hotel is really a strategic spot for us tourists.  The street vendors were all ready to boost their sales in front, at the side and along the whole stretch of street where we stayed.  Left, right, front... the place was filled with people and tourists like us... I could hear some of them speaking my dialect, we felt kind of at home instead of being tourists.... Besides the street vendors in front of the hotel, there was a night market just five minutes walking distance away from our hotel, Lee Garden Plaza.... Maybe they only opened during the weekends?  I am not sure about that.. .anyway, we were kind of excited to see all the bright lights along the street.... Come... Let's Go! We started from the beginning of the str
